Some of the older members can probably guess next year's events by now, but the semi-official list comes out around May (I can't remember exactly), the draft rules will give almost completely definite events by July-ish, and (of course) the events are final when the rules come out in September.

There's a tentative list up on the internet. Your mission: find it ;). It's a great amusement now seeing the young ones having to figure out what us older people took years to figure out XD. If nobody bothers to post it by around end of April, I'll link it (though, it's been linked on the forums before). This is because that's when my semester ends, and just in case people don't want their teams being distracted across the next week (those who want to know can find it, but a bunch of Div C states go on next week). Topics take a bit more work, but this is also doable by looking at past cycles.
B: Crave the Wave, Environmental Chemistry, Robo-Cross, Meteorology, Physical Science Lab, Solar System, DyPlan (E and V), Shock Value
C: Microbe Mission, DyPlan (Earth's Fresh Waters), Fermi Questions, GeoMaps, Gravity Vehicle, Scrambler, Rocks, Astronomy
Grad: Writing Tests/Supervising (NY/MI)

I'm not really fond of a single event currently in rotation, so next season can only get better. I mean:

My Head coach thinks this will be the event list.
New taxonomy event rotates in before herps. Invasive Species, which has been in trials for a few years.

Bridges becomes elevated bridge - small change.

In addition to invasive species, C gets electric vehicle, hyrogeology, Robots of some sort and a building event to be named later..
